HarderFaster Awards 2013 - The results are in!

Reported by HarderFaster / Submitted 20-02-14 20:44

Before 2013 faded into a complete blur, we asked HarderFaster members to look back and tell us who, what, when and where made the year memorable, whether that be for good or bad reasons.

This year’s poll saw a good turnout, and your votes continue to demonstrate their usual wit and wisdom with Josie managing a couple of mentions for festival and kerb appearing in every category.

And as we’ve noticed in our recent annual polls, you all have pretty diverse and eclectic tastes so we’ll continue to award top honours to those who were clearly in the lead and honourable mentions to those who were near the top.


HarderFaster Club Night of the Year 2013
Which was the best overall promotion of the year?

Winner: Lost Dawn

Lost Dawn takes the crown again, and after their Carnival Festival last summer we’re not surprised it was a landslide.

Honourable mention goes to Myopia.

HarderFaster After Party of the Year 2013
If the night is just not enough then this is where you'll be, and 2013 finally confirmed the trend - you’d rather be at a crack-on than a formal event when it comes to afters.

Honourable mentions go to Twist, Jaded and Marlowe’s.

Don't fancy a late night? This is the daytime party where it's all happening.

A golden oldie which Mat started back in 2010 but not only was it your choice, it was also the thread with the most posts made in 2013.

For our forum regulars, here are the next most popular threads of 2013, based on posts:

Intelligence based on 'fabrication'
On benefits & proud.
Is it now becoming impossible for even the most skeptical too deny the existence of a creator???
What are you listening to right now?

Honourable mentions to People who need punching by ceekay and Interesting Links by Private1

HarderFaster Member Awards

HarderFaster Member of the Year 2013
Who was your favourite overall HarderFaster member in 2013?

Winner: Slink.

Slink retains his crown as Member of the Year 2013 but hot on his heels were bear grrrr and Staggo.

HarderFaster Intellectual of the Year 2013
Which HarderFaster member gave you food for thought in 2013?

Winner: Stakker

Stakker continues in his post as HarderFaster’s resident intellectual, although we were a little concerned at some of the other nominations…

HarderFaster Redeemed Member of the Year 2013
Who in your eyes redeemed themselves during the year?

Winner: Donnie

There’s no denying it, Donnie makes HarderFaster more interesting and entertaining, and this award proves he can do it by wit and wisdom alone (or so he says anyway).

HarderFaster Party Animal of the Year 2013
Who was HarderFaster's party animal in 2013?

Winner: Skaramanga

Skaramanga extends his lead, retaining the HarderFaster Party Animal crown and from the massive response he doesn't look like he’s likely to slip any time soon. Threats of settling down are as empty as his bottle of tequila, just go easy on him on Tuesdays.

Honourable mentions to bear grrrr who’s catching up fast (but is probably still a lightweight), and Adam Symbiosis in a close third place.

HarderFaster Smoothest Operator of the Year 2013
Who was HarderFaster's smoothest operator during 2013?

Winner: Donnie

Donnie is crowned HarderFaster’s Mr Smooooth, with 2012 winner Kerb sliding down the greasy pole into second. Can young kerb up his game for next year?

HarderFaster The Dark Side of the Year 2013
Which HarderFaster member did you love to hate in 2013?

Winner: 3radical takes top spot, defeating 2012 Darth Vader Latex Zebra, but newcomer Slink. enters the race with a strong showing in the Dark Side despite his member of the year award so it’s all to play for in 2014.

HarderFaster Flounce of the Year 2013
Who performed the best 3-point flounce in the year?

Joint Winners: Latex Zebra and Quin.

Latex Zebra achieves legendary status, retaining an Honorary Flounce crown several years after the actual event (with perhaps the odd mini flounce thrown in), but there’s a new kid leaving the block in the form of Quin and we felt it was fair to award a joint prize in this category.

HarderFaster Meltdown of the Year 2013
Who threw their toys AND pram out of the nursery window?

Joint Winners: Latex Zebra and 3radical

Chernobyl has nothing on these two. The fallout can be felt far and wide with Mothercare no longer taking orders for replacement toys.

Congratulations to all our worthy winners, and runners up; commiserations to those who didn’t quite make the mark; thanks to all who took time to vote.

So that’s a wrap for our 2013 awards; keep your eyes and ears open for what’s best and worst in 2014, and we look forward to seeing your votes next year.

There we are.

From: Slink. on 21st Feb 2014 08:38.38
LZ, was that your original comment?

Well done folks!

Marlowe's, lol. Good work everyone.

From: Cerberus on 21st Feb 2014 11:13.11

From: Stakker on 21st Feb 2014 12:20.03
I've only just seen this, thanks people! Big grin

From: Latex Zebra on 21st Feb 2014 18:25.35
No Slink.
I said 'Seriously?' But I thought that seemed a little negative for a first comment and may have looked like I was dissing a winner rather than facepalming at getting an honoray flounce trophy.

From: Pete M on 4th Mar 2014 12:08.43
Wow. Thanks, guys. Been a bit slacking with the reviews recently due to work and stuff. But this means a lot. In the words of the Judge, "we continue". Now let's all get fucking pissed.

From: Tara on 11th Mar 2014 19:39.57
Thx HF! Gives Flowers Actually thought the other half deserved it this time round, but he'll just have to try harder this year Wink Also great to see Astral Circus getting a mention, hope to see you at our 2nd birthday on Friday 27th June! Happy Birthday!

From: Nikki S on 18th Apr 2014 13:46.54
